MIM: The Islamic Circle of North America is a terrorist linked group. Note that they claim that the bodies were of "dead Afghani people" and not that of the terrorist Taliban group. ICNA also exploits the alleged incident to "urge the Obama administration to address Islamphobia in the military". These groups are nowhere to be seen or heard when it comes to Taliban atrocities committed against non Muslims.
ICNA Condemns Desecration of Bodies by US Marines
—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
JAMAICA, New York (January 12, 2012) – In a press release issued today, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) condemned the behavior of U.S. Marines who were filmed urinating on the bodies of dead Afghani people.
The actions of this group completely undermine the work of our servicemen and women and are contradictory to the values of the American people. Such acts only serve to further distort the image of America and greatly endanger the lives of our troops and civilians abroad.
ICNA calls upon all political leaders, including Republican presidential hopefuls, to condemn this act. We also urge the Obama administration to address the issue of Islamophobia in the military. We must send a message to the world that such immoral conduct and utter disrespect for the sanctity of life and the human body will not be tolerated by America."
The Islamic Circle of North America is a leading American Muslim organization dedicated to the betterment of society through the promotion of Islamic values. Since 1968, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services and relief efforts.

We are shocked to see representatives of our great nation engaging in behavior that disrespects America, our values and our armed forces. This behavior is against the military's code of conduct as well and the Geneva Convention's rules on prisoners of war.
Unfortunately, these types of actions can only serve to bring animosity to the United States as it diminishes the trust other nations and their citizens have put in us.
ISNA is an association of Muslim organizations and individuals that provides a common platform for presenting Islam, supporting Muslim communities, developing educational, social and outreach programs and fostering good relations with other religious communities, and civic and service organizations.
Founded in 1988, MPAC is an American institution which informs and shapes public opinion and policy by serving as a trusted resource to decision makers in government, media and policy institutions.
